I used to use a PIII 450Mhz desktop. Served me well. Recently, in an effort to study away from the house and kids, I purchased a laptop with an AMD Athlon 1.2Ghz. The difference in speed is breath taking. Now, I use the desktop predominantly for gaming because of its 19" screen. For anything else, I prefer the laptop.
At work it is a different story. I am in the Marine Corps and code on an old PII 400 with a 17" screen. Yes, it is adequate, but I am definitley flying coach!!!
How does industry treat you real programmers? Do you get sweeter systems?
